Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, (tested with cropped-frame APS-C body)

Camera Labs
1 March 2008
  • Summary: There’s no denying the Canon EF 24-105mm is a high quality lens. It has decent optics, the excellent mechanical and build quality you’d expect from Canon’s L series, while the USM auto-focusing and Image Stabilisation are both very effective in use.
  • Pros: Canon 'L' build and mechanical quality., Effective IS and quick USM focusing., Polariser-friendly internal focusing., Compatible with full-frame bodies.
  • Cons: Lacking wide-angle on cropped bodies., Relatively expensive., Fringing visible even on cropped-frame., Less compelling if you're not going full-frame.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

Camera Labs
1 June 2006
  • Summary: The lens did however have a rocky start, with early models suffering from an internal flare problem , forcing returns and delaying wider distribution. These issues seem to have been solved now though, and certainly the versions we've tested exhibited no problems in this regard.
  • Pros: Useful wide to short telephoto range, Effective anti-shake IS capability, Fast and quiet USM focusing motor, Polariser-friendly internal focusing
  • Cons: Relatively expensive (at list price), Corners slightly soft at telephoto end, 24-70 f/2.8L has better build and focusing, 17-40mm f/4L an affordable alternative

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS (full format) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
13 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS is surely one of the better standard zoom lenses for full format EOS DSLRs but it's not perfect within this scope nonetheless. The resolution figures are generally very decent except for a pronounced border softness at 70mm @ f/4.

photozone.de
14 September 2008
  • Conclusion: Regarding its equivalent zoom range (39-168mm) on an APS-C DSLR the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS may not be the most sexy lens here but its performance figures are very impressive nonetheless.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS - Retest @ 15mp (APS-C)

photozone.de
8 September 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS produced pretty good quality figures in our tests. The resolution is generally very high throughout the tested range with the exception of 70mm and 105mm @ f/4 where the border quality tanked somewhat - this may originate in a slight centering issue of our test...

PDA mit Kamera: Sony CLIE PEG-TJ27

CNET
24 May 2004
  • Summary: Die Kamera ist eine schöne Sache, aber spärliche Softwareausstattung und mangelnde Multimedia-Unterstützung lassen den TJ27 hinter die Konkurrenz zurückfallen.
  • Pros: integrierte 310.000-Pixel-Kamera, schneller Prozessor, lange Akkulebensdauer, schlanke Form
  • Cons: dürftiges Softwarepaket, blasser Bildschirm, kein MP3-Player, Akku nicht austauschbar
